Ajax, who answers to Jax, commands the brothers’ takedowns. He’s always first, and no one makes a move without his order. He likes to read biographies, and collects memorabilia from past wars. His favorite thing to do is play basketball, and once asked Key to recruit Magic Johnson as a Lumina. Key said no, but Jax still manages to find enough Luminas to form teams.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

There’s no such thing as perfect happiness.

Which historical figure do you most identify with?

Genghis Khan.

Which living person do you most admire?

A gang leader I met in L.A. He’s functionally illiterate, but his guys follow him without question, because he’s fair, conscientious, and has a knack for diplomacy. Only when that fails does he start shooting. Damn shame he won’t go to school.

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

Too rigid.

What is your favorite journey?

Home, after a takedown.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Humility. If someone’s proud of their accomplishments, they’re proud – acting all humble about it is bullshit.

On what occasion do you lie?

When my brothers ask me if I have all the bases covered before we move in for a takedown. I say yes, because they need to hear my confidence, but sometimes, I can’t be sure.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?

Why?  Is there something wrong with how I look?

Which living person do you most despise?

My father’s first born – Eryx. I dream of killing him.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

When and where were you happiest?

Growing up on Kyanos, before we knew what was in store for us, when my mother was alive.

Which talent would you most like to have?


If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

That we’d all find an Anabo, sooner than later, and have a gajillion kids. Hopefully some tall ones who can play b-ball.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

I haven’t achieved it yet.

If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?

We can’t die. We’re immortal. This is, therefore, a stupid question.

If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?

This question is more moronic than that last one. Next.

What is your most treasured possession?

My switchblade. Key had it made for me in Spain.

What is your most marked characteristic?

Organization and the ability to lead.

Who are your favorite writers?

Winston Churchill.

Who is your favorite hero of fiction?

Rick from Casablanca.

What is it that you most dislike?

Assholes. Like, people who are assholes. I’ve got nothing against real assholes. This is a stupid question too. I’ll tell you what I dislike – stupid questions.

What is your motto?

The deed is everything, the glory, nothing. That’s from Goethe.
